Annual tax-free week kicks off in Connecticut
Great news for shoppers as the back-to-school rush gets underway: it's tax-free week in Connecticut.
Sunday kicks off the annual "sales tax holiday." Purchases of clothing and footwear items that cost less than $300 will not be taxed.
According to the state's website, handbags, jewelry and other such accessories are not covered by the tax exemption and will still be taxed.
